Sure, the sun has reared its head every so often in the last few weeks but for the most part, the days have been bone-chillingly cold. For those working from home, this has meant embracing the 'camera off' feature and pulling on as many layers as humanly possible. When we've had to venture into the outside world, we’ve committed fully to the benchwarmer aesthetic with woolly hats, padded gloves and Arsène Wenger-style puffer coats.
Thankfully, the first month of the year is now behind us, making way for an ever-so-slightly warmer February. Okay, so we're not stripping off into swimwear just yet but the minute increase in temperature has us thinking about outfit possibilities for the weeks ahead. This includes the introduction of some more colourful winter pieces, with bright knitwear at the top of our list for an instant mood booster.
If you aren’t in the market for a jolly jumper, we’ve got plenty of accessories on our radar, with some standout footwear and head-turning claw clips making our wish lists this month. And if you're sticking to sensible, cold weather dressing, we have practical pieces on the brain too, from puffer skirts to thermal activewear.
